The Inferno of Dante Alighieri: A New Translation
This is a truly original retelling of Dante's epic journey that will surprise and renew the 21st-century reader's faith in the art of translation. Remarkably inventive, Ciaran Carson's Inferno deserves comparison with Seamus Heaney's Beowulf and Ted Hughes's Tales from Ovid.
